Home > How Good? > God weights goood vs bad

How good do you have to be to get into heaven?

No one knows. God weighs our good deeds vs. our bad deeds and judges us based on whether our good deeds outweight our bad deeds.

The Bible does not say this.

Nowhere in the Bible does it say that our salvation will be judged based on how much good we have done vs. how much evil we have done. We will be judged solely on whether or not Jesus knows us.

This is what happens on the final judgement day:

"And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire." - Revelation 20:15 (NLT)

What about those doing the Lord's work. Won't they get into heaven because of everything they are doing for God? Here's what Jesus said:

"On judgement day many will tell me, 'Lord, Lord, we prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Go away; the things you did were unauthorized." - Matthew 7:22-23

Your salvation does not depend on what you've done in this life or how good you've been. It depends on knowing Jesus. And "knowing Jesus" means knowing Him as your Lord and Savior. Accepting Jesus for who He is - the Son of God who died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins.


Judgement of Our Works: Yes, what you have done with your life will be judged. If you have trusted in Jesus for your salvation, the judgement of what you have done will determine your reward in heaven. All who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will have eternal life in heaven, but we each will have different heavenly rewards based on what we have done while on earth.
